Love collides fear, the power of art with the forces of war, and the lives of Evelyn, Otto and Geoffrey are changed irrevocably.

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2013.

It is a year of tension, change and anticipation. The German enemy invasion is expected to land on the beaches of Brighton any day now. Evelyn Beaumont's husband Geoffrey is made Superintendent of the enemy alien camp on the reaches of the town while Evelyn quietly struggles to fall in with the war effort with a growing sense of indefinable desperation. Then she meets Otto a 'degenerate' German-Jewish painter an prisoner in her husband's internment camp. As Europe crumbles, Evelyn's and Otto's mutual distrust slowly begins to change into something else, which will shatter the structures on which her life, her family and her community rest.
